Hello, fellow tv.com addicts!
It's that time again. Time to begin a brand new Survivor ORG. Those of you who know the game of Survivor know that there is a new twist added to the game: REDEMPTION ISLAND. That is right, folks! For the first time in Survivor ORG history, when you are voted off, you won't leave the game. You will be sent to a remote island where you will wait for another contestant to be voted off. Then the 2 of you will face in a duel. The winner moves on while the loser is out for good and must throw their tribal buff in the fire. At some point in the game, the Redemption Island King or Queen will come back into the game and have a shot at winning Survivor: Redemption Island ORG.
For those of you that don't know about Survivor, don't panic. The game is simple to learn. There will be 2 tribes.The 2 tribes will face each other for either reward (an advantage in the next challenge) or immunity. Winning the immunity challenge will guarantee your tribe safety forone round while the losers go to tribal council where you have to vote one of yourown out of the game.This season will not only have Redemption Island but it will also have another island that adds another twist and turn to this game. Survivor fans know what I am talking about. It is the return of Exile Island. Every time your tribe wins a reward challenge orcombined reward/immunity challenge, you must send a member of the losing tribe toExile Island. Now, on Exile, you will be given a series of clues, questions or riddles to help you earn the powerful immunity idol. This idol has caused so many blindsides in Survivor. You could use this idol before I reveal the vote. Doing so will negate any votes against you and the person with the next highest number of votes will be sent packing. The goal of this game is to make alliances to help you advance in the game. You could lie and backstab if you want or you could play a totally honest game. Whatever works for you. In the end, only one person can be Sole Survivor. REMEMBER THAT!
Now that you got the basics, I want to go over someting with you guys and gals. ONLY SIGN UP IF YOU ARE 110% SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BE HERE AND PARTICIPATE EVERY DAY THIS GAME GOES ON. Of course if something comes up and you can't be here, let me know and I will understand. Trust me, I know (hope)we all have lives outside of tv.com. But I will tell you that I have been in many tv.com games before where some people would sign up and then disappear and never come back. If you are gonna be one of those people don't even think about signing up. Remember also that don't leave the game if you are voted off because of Redemption Island. You still have a chance to come back. Until you lose a Redemption Island duel, you are still alive in the game. Once we get down to10 players, we will build the jury. The jury will becomposed of 7 people (the players thatcome in 10th through 4th place). Those 7 people will question the final 3 and then vote for the person they want to see crowned SoleSurvivor.
For those of you that don't know me, I am known as Yami on the tv.com boards. I will be the hostfor the 3rd Survivor game. The first season was won by agood friend of mine, Meghan and the second season was won by yours truly.This game has definitely been up there with Big Brother as one of the most popular tv.com games and I am so glad to be hosting this one.
